I saw a picture yesterday that said “little by little we travel far.”  How true.  Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard we work and no matter how much we struggle that we are just marking time.   You are not.  You are constantly moving forward even if it feels as slow as water wearing down a rock.
Take a moment and take stock of the last year or two.  How have you changed?  In what ways have you moved forward?   Give yourself some points for how far you’ve come.
